Wow, only a few weeks away and I get the opportunity to go teach in London! I am teaming up with my dear friends, Seema Johari Agarwal and her daughter Anu. Seema is the daughter of my teacher Harish Johari. We will be supported by other members of the Johari family. The concept of this workshop is to bring Indian culture to the west. I will be teaching a weeklong Yantra & Mandala Workshop, in the evenings we will have different cultural events. Some highlights will be, Ayurvedic Cooking Classes, Storytelling, Kirtan, Henna Party and just the experience of being with a family where so much tradition has been passed down. Super excited! The dates are July 16-22 and optimum to come for the whole week if you can, but you can also come for a few days and pick the package you want! Contact me for more info and registration.
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year. Many blessings for all of you in 2014!
We are getting ready for another year of Sacred Painting in Haridwar, India! This is a very special trip as you will be getting the knowledge of 2 Master Artists, Pieter Weltevrede and Mavis Gewant. Pieter and Mavis were both very close students of the late Tantric Yogi, Artist and Writer, Harish Johari (Dada). Both spent over 20 years studying with him and specialize in Sacred Art, Yantras, Mandalas and Deity Painting. During this trip, you will get to spend each day painting right by the Ganga at the house built by our teacher. Family members will take care of us with incredible food and energy! Dada's daughter, Seema is our host and makes sure everyone is happy!
Right now, we are running a sale. If you register by January 15th, you will get $300 off the full price of the trip. Regularly, $3100, now $2800, which includes all classes, accommodations, local trips, ground transportation, airport pickup and great food! To register, contact Mavis, firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some photos from previous years trips, so you can see the incredible work our students have created!
Just came back from the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat in the Bahamas. I had 3 wonderful workshops, Yantra Painting, Chakra Painting and Planet Mandalas. Students were extremely focused, creating amazing work, while sitting in silence, reciting their mantras. For those of you that missed it, I will be there again next year!
Here are some photos from the workshop:
